"Alex is an absolute dream to work with! Epicness on every level; from the organisation on the back end, to the creative process to the insanely delicious produce, everything was seamless. We worked with Alex on a grazing table to celebrate our teacher training graduation and it was perfect for our yogi tribe! The glorious food, the stunning presentation and level of care Alex gave was outstanding. Alex was there to guide our yogis through an organic Indian journey and it was an afternoon we will never forget. We cannot wait for the next event!"
